Liberal Arts Education: Why It Still Matters
by Janet Morgan Riggs, President of Gettysburg College

How will studying Shakespeare or cell biology or modern art help me get a job?
The most straight forward answer is liberal arts colleges, at their best, provide en exceptionally effective learning environment
for developing the kind of intellectual power and propensity for action that the world needs to tackle the daunting challenges
we face. A critical reading of the great works of Western and nonwestern traditions can help clarify our own ideas and values
and better understand the perspectives of others.

Studying science provides practice in testing hypotheses and analyzing data. Studying the arts and appreciation for the
richness and endless diversity of human imagination. The point is that it is not so much the specific content of our courses that
is at the core of the liberal arts experience, rather the value is in a way of learning. We ask students to digest and comprehend
huge quantities of data, evaluate sources, communicate findings, analyze and synthesize ideas and draw and defend
conclusions. Many CEOs are looking for employees with the attributes that a liberal arts education instills: critical thinking,
clear communication, collaboration, an appreciation for diverse points of view, the ability to approach a problem from multiple
perspectives, ethical judgment and lifelong learning skills. These habits of mind have enduring value at a time when labor
specialists tell us that 70 percent of the jobs that will be in demand in the next few decades do not even exist now. Of course
we have an obligation to help our students find a way to translate what they have learned into a potential career direction.

Career service departments have become increasingly sophisticated in helping students identify potential matches between their
skills and their interests. Internships, job-shadowing experiences and networking opportunities help students bridge the
transition between school and work. Liberal arts colleges are leaders in providing opportunities for students to experience life
beyond the boundaries of campus. During the last spring break , for example, Gettysburg College students explored middle
school education in urban Baltimore, honed their leadership skills in Arizona’s rugged Dragoon Mountains and learned
firsthand about life in Leone, Nicaragua. During economic crisis , the temptation t look for an immediate return on an
educational investment is strong, but shortsighted. Future leaders in education science, law, business And medicine and public
service will be those who will think clearly and creatively, challenge conventional thinking, understand the global context and
feel a responsibility to use their education for the greater good.
